It’s our absolute favorite event of the year. Taste of the Wasatch has it all – food, wine, beer and live music against the scenic Solitude Resort. And what’s better than that? It’s all for a fantastic cause.

Over 1,500 expected attendees will participate in this gastronomic event while enjoying cutting edge fine cuisine from restaurants such as Stein Eriksen’s Lodge’s Glitretind, Deer Valley Resort, Avenues Proper, La Caille, Luna Blanca, Trio, Meditrina, Red Iguana and more. New restaurants joining the event include Harbor Seafood and Steak, Current Fish and Oyster, R and R BBQ, Porch, Taqueria 27, Bistro 222 and The Annex by Epic Brewing. The now famous Dessert Booth will showcase fine desserts from more than 15 of the state’s best top pastry chefs and bakers.

Tickets for Taste of the Wasatch are $90 for General Admission and $125 for Reserved Seating (VIP), if purchased in advance. Group discounts are available. Tickets can be purchased online at www.tasteofthewasatch.org.

Last year we enjoyed General Admission with two camping chairs (that have never been camping) and a nice shady spot. The difference between General Admission and  VIP (besides some $$) is that you can enter a half hour early and enjoy dining at a table under a large white tent.

Check out my coverage for SLUG Magazine about last year’s event.

We brought two chairs and found a lovely, shady spot.
